A bit of interesting work

I’ve had a couple of interesting days, stretching some mental muscles:

  • Finally digging into creating some Alfred workflows to streamline common stuff I do on my Macs. I’m just scratching the surface of what workflows are capable of, and just getting started.
  • Spending some time digging into using SQL Server’s XML handling capabilities to shred highly-structured XML into relational data. Kind of mind-warping, but an interesting challenge. Definitely learning, and fairly impressed with the speed.
